In the Boavista room, Mariza will perform songs by Amália Rodrigues, to whom she dedicated her most recent album, Mariza Canta Amália, released in November 2020, indicates the statement from Casa da Música.

The singer recorded themes by Amália on her debut album, and a poem by the fado singer, Ó Gente da Minha Terra, with music by Tiago Machado.
From the lineup of the album dedicated to Amália, Mariza sings ten songs, among which are the unavoidable Barco Negro (Caco Velho/Piratini, adapted from the lyrics by David Mourão-Ferreira), Povo que Lavas no Rio (Pedro Homem de Mello/Fado Vitória , by Joaquim Campos), Foi Deus (Alberto Janes), Lágrima (Amália/Carlos Gonçalves) and Seagull (Alexandre O’Neil/Alain Oulman).
In March, Mariza is scheduled to perform, on the 13th, at Alter Opera, in Frankfurt and, on the following day, at Die Glocke Grober, in Dusseldorf, Germany. In June, on the 7th, she takes the stage of the Auditorium Parca Dela Musica, in Rome.
Born in Mozambique, Mariza came to live in the Lisbon neighborhood of Mouraria, as a girl, and revealed herself in 2002. Throughout her career she received, among other distinctions, the European Border Breakers Award, from MIDEM, in 2004, the Amália Award Rodrigues/Internacional, in 2005 and, in 2006, the BBC Radio 3 Award, for the Best World Music Artist in Europe. In the same year, the Portuguese State decorated her with the Order of Infante D. Henrique (comendadora degree).
